Cusco – and the Incas!

We have arrived at Cusco. Cusco is full of history and was once capital of the Inca Empire. The Inca ruins can be found throughout the city. Cusco is around 3,400m (11,200 ft) above see level and sits near the Andes mountain range. The city is devided into two, old and new city.

We visited many historical sites, amoung them Qurikancha, Sacsaywamán, Ollantaytambo Ruins. One of the favourites being Pisac. Unfortunately it was a cloudy day when we visted Salinas de Maras so the photos do not show how stunning they look. As to the Morays, I wish I could have one of them in my garden, I could grow all my own vegetables.
